Fungal infections are common and uncomfortable, affect people health and well-being of people and animals. Fungi live all around us, on various items, surfaces, in soil, on plants, and on our skin. Every day, people come into contact with millions of germs, viruses, fungi, etc. through touching animals, surfaces, other people, or objects. Moreover, fungi can live on your skin and don't cause any harmful action until your immune system is weakened.
Fungal skin infections are highly contagious and can pass from one person to another and from one part of the body to another. The fungal infection spreads between people through direct contact or using the same towels or clothes, or scratching, cuts, wounds, contacting with contaminated surfaces or objects. Some people are more vulnerable than others. People with a weak immune system catch fungal infections more often and more simply. A strong immune system helps to resist fungi infection even if people have daily contact with the infected person.
Personal hygiene is one of the key ways to avoid catching and spreading fungal infections, viruses, microbes, all dermatophytosis types, infectious diseases, and reduce the risk of recurring. Personal hygiene is care for our body, which helps prevent illnesses efficiently. Keeping all parts of the body clean helps to keep it healthy physically. This also keeps mental health, well-being, mood, and self-confidence. It is also important to keep your body dry because fungi live and multiply in the warm and damp environment. Therefore, public areas like swimming pools, showers, gyms are at high risk, fungi often spread there. Be especially careful in these places and observe thoroughly the rules of personal hygiene, wear sandals or flip-flops, bring and use your own towels, wash your body after swimming pool, and dry it totally.
Personal hygiene includes washing hands with soap frequently, daily bathing or taking a shower, washing hair regularly, brushing teeth twice a day, taking care of nails, trimming them shortly, cleaning nose and ears, washing hands after contacting animals, covering mouth and nose with a tissue when sneezing or coughing, rinsing the nose and gargling after possible contact with the infection, wearing clean clothes and daily changing underwear, sleeping enough and observing food hygiene, visiting your doctor regularly. At the same time, over-washing can irritate your skin, just know the measure. Also, don’t share personal items like towels, bedsheets, clothes, hairbrushes, etc. Use cotton clothes and socks, shoes that allow your feet to breathe and don't press your nails. When you make the manicure and pedicure in the salon, better bring your own nail accessories.
